Hail the Sun
Hail the Sun
Hail The Sun is a progressive post-hardcore quartet who met in Chico, CA, while studying music technology. The overlap of influences throughout the group has led them to become one of the most dynamic and intricate musical acts to come out of the scene in decades. Formed by drummer Donovan Melero and guitarist Aric Garcia (who played in a death metal band in high school), the original idea for the musical direction was to remain high-energy, while allowing melodies and harmonies to be a prominent feature, rather than just screaming to portray intense emotion. The addition of Shane Gann and John Stirrat brought additional flavors, and the group began to stretch its creative legs, allowing itself to write parts and songs that were much more heavily influenced by jazz, funk, blues, fusion, and Latin musical styles.

The group has toured extensively throughout its three-year existence, and has recently begun experiencing national exposure. They have one of the most high-energy live shows ever witnessed, and that's all while playing amazingly difficult lines and rhythms. Their drummer is their singer, which is a show in and of itself, and the addition of the other three acting as visual "frontmen," while not singing, lets the audience's attention move from here to there seamlessly, and without feeling bored.
Counting Constellations
Alternative from Pueblo, Colorado.
Mosaic (CO)
Mosaic is a patchwork of diverse, melodic, progressive, and powerful music made up of Carl Straka, Erik Martin, Nema Sobhani, Phillip Tacoronte, and Zachary Moreno. Their unique collaboration of cinematic hard rock and pop influenced rock vocals has set them apart from any other modern rock group anywhere. Their music has been related to the instrumentation of bands like Circa Survive, Chevelle, and Dance Gavin Dance with vocal stylings similar to Panic! at the Disco. When asked about Mosaic’s music Nick Pelc, and audio engineer at the award winning Side 3 Studios in CO has this to say, “Mosaic is a combination of all things creative”.

Mosaic officially released their debut EP (Collision EP) in late 2015 and are currently finishing up production on 2 brand new EP's that specifically highlight Mosaic’s signature blend of hard rock and alternative pop. New singles from these new EP’s will be premiering in late summer of 2017.
